Grand Slam Ignites the Airwaves with New Single ‘Spitfire’ from Upcoming Album ‘Wheel Of Fortune

“I simply can’t wait for you guys to listen to this track. It’s a complete monster!” – Mike Dyer

Grand Slam, the powerhouse rock ensemble, has just released the thrilling music video for “Spitfire”, the potent second single from their forthcoming studio album, Wheel Of Fortune. Set for release on June 7th through Silver Lining Music, the album promises to be a landmark in their storied journey.

Mike Dyer, the band’s charismatic frontman, shared his excitement about the new track, describing it as “a complete monster”. He revealed the unique inspiration behind “Spitfire”, stemming from a story about a young boy overcoming his fear of heights, which resonated deeply with him during a pressurized night in the studio.

Laurence Archer, guitarist and co-founding member, noted that although he had an initial arrangement for “Spitfire”, it was the collaborative magic in the studio that truly shaped the song into the formidable track it is today. The music video, directed by Fred Johanson, is a visual echo of the song’s fierce energy.

Wheel Of Fortune marks a pivotal moment for Grand Slam. It features Archer’s bold, fearless guitar work and Dyer’s unmistakable swagger across tracks like “There Goes My Heart” and the moody “Come Together (In Harlem)”. The album resonates with echoes of the band’s roots while boldly stepping into new territories with tracks like the vibrant “Pirate Song”.

With Benjy Reid on drums and Rocky Newton on bass, the band’s dynamism and creative spirit are unmistakably robust. Dyer passionately stated, “This band is something very special… I’m really proud of that.”
